have 1985 when i'm coming out of college, between 1995 and 2004, we added another 20,000 pages to the tax code from 40,000 pages to 60,000 pages. 2007, to 67,000 pages. 2008, kept it just a little over 67,000 pages. 2009, jumped another 3,000 pages. 70,000 pages of tax legislation. and to be clear, mr. speaker, when we talk about tax legislation, we're talking about the ways that the government separates you and me and all of the american people from our paycheck. that's all there is in the tax code. all the tax code is, is how do we separate the american people from their productivity. take 70,000 pages in 2009 to sort that out. 71,000 pages in 2010 and now 72,000 pages of tax code in 2011.
